At least not all Londoners are giving up.
Reports suggested that members of north London’s Turkish community had taken their own decision. Hundreds were said to have lined the streets of Stoke Newington, brandishing baseball bats.Because, the effective means of self-defense have all been rendered illegal.
I wonder if they will see it as a wake-up call?
The victims - London’s hard-working shop keepers, commuters and families, proud of their homes and their well-kept streets - began to lose faith in the law.The victims are the hard-working folks. The police are not doing much to help.
I doubt much will be done to anyone arrested. Antisocial Behavior Orders (ASBO) is like a traffic ticket or a badge of honor. Not real punishment. Jail time? Not in the advanced, much-smarted than the US place that used to be Great Britain. Jail is uncivilized. Or something.
